Magnetic Tape

First Commissions inspired by The Age of Maturity: examine the inevitability of time.

Artist Statement

Magnetic Tape is an interactive, video installation experienced by watching a series of VHS tapes across a series of TVs. It is a response to the enduring commercial power of The 90s and its increasing vagueness as a period of time. It takes place in the year 8100 and concerns the discovery of a Furby that may or may not be from the year 1998. This piece explores the power of one Furby, and by extension…capitalism, to influence the passage of time.
